      Adopted by Council Resolution # 7164 on 13 September 2016.
The Shire of Collie
The Shire of Collie is located in the South West of Western Australia
approximately 60 kilometres from the City of Bunbury and 200 kilometres
from the City of Perth.

The Shire has an area of 1,685 square kilometres, with 80% of this area
taken up with State Forest. The remaining 20% is utilised for significant
industrial activities and urban and rural developments.

Data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics indicates the population of
Collie in 2011 was 9,128 with the vast majority living within the Collie
townsite.

Collie is well serviced with modern medical, dental and hospital facilities, art
gallery, vibrant central park and skate park, primary and secondary schools,
and early education centre. Excellent sporting facilities are available,
including grass tennis courts, two golf courses, an indoor recreation centre,
outdoor heated 50mtr and leisure pools, PCYC, lawn bowls, motor sports
and strong sporting associations.

The Shire of Collie has a rich heritage influenced by the industrial activities
of mining and power generation, and a strong sense of the environment
generated by the surrounding waterways and forests.

Partnership Background
In 2003, the Minister for Community Safety wrote to Council advising of a
new approach to crime prevention, which focused on Local Government
areas and the development of local Community Safety and Crime
Prevention partnerships and plans. The Minister invited Local Government
to participate and offered the assistance of the WA Police Community
Engagement Division to assist in forming a local Community Safety and
Crime Prevention partnership.

The concept of the partnership was that Local Government and local
people are perceived to be best positioned to understand local problems.
Local Government was also acknowledged as being well placed to
coordinate discussions of community safety and crime prevention issues
because of its role in local planning, environmental management, economic
development, urban design and community safety provision.

The vision Collie Shire Council has for the Community is for Collie to be a
vibrant, growing and sustainable community where people want to live, visit
and invest. Crime and community safety are two aspects intrinsic to
providing a community where people want to live and visit.

Council resolved in January 2006 to sign a Community Safety and Crime
Prevention Agreement, subject to the employment of a Community
Development Officer. A Community Development Officer was employed by
Council in March 2007.

                                                                     Page 2 of 19
Collie CSCP Plan –2016 - 2019

Defining Community Safety and Crime Prevention
Community safety impacts on the quality of life where a high level of
community safety enables residents to pursue all aspects of their lives
without fear or hindrance from crime or antisocial behaviour. Community
safety and crime prevention tackles issues that are both real and
perceived, and as such includes issues such as addressing fear of crime.

Crime prevention can be categorised as primary, secondary, or tertiary.
Primary crime prevention is targeted at changing the environmental
conditions that provide opportunities for the occurrence of criminal or
antisocial acts.

Secondary crime prevention is the early identification of potential offenders
by intervening, seeking to prevent the criminal or antisocial behaviour from
occurring.    Tertiary crime prevention targets offenders and involves
interventions to stop further offending.

Crime prevention refers to any measure taken to prevent crime and
antisocial behaviour before it occurs. Risk factors such as age, socio-
economic factors, low education, income, employment and alcohol abuse
are strong indicators of people at risk of both committing crimes and
becoming victims of crime.

Social crime prevention is about reducing the desire to commit crime
through strategies and programs that address risk factors. Situational
crime prevention is about reducing the opportunities for crime to occur.

The Plan

A Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan is designed to reduce the
social and economic costs of crime to the community by lowering both the
number of cases coming before the criminal justice system, and by
reducing the impact of crime on health and other social services.

The Plan focuses on crime prevention issues that affect communities at a
local level.

Furthermore, the document needs to demonstrate that the process has met
the WA Police Community Engagement Division requirements of:

                     Being evidence based
                     Consults widely with the community and engages with
                      minority or marginalised groups
                     Has an ongoing process for monitoring and evaluation

                                                                     Page 3 of 19

               Seniors
               The general public
               The health sector

The Terms of Reference for the committee allows for representative
committee members to be elected from each of the following groups, if
such groups desire to have representation:
              Shire of Collie Councillors
              Shire of Collie Officers
              W.A. Police

The Terms of Reference also allows for the Committee to call upon
consultants or guests with specific expertise as the need arises and invite
them to attend meetings.

The committee commenced meeting in September 2007.

Community Consultation
Perceptions Survey

In 2009, 2011 and 2013, CATALYSE® Pty Ltd conducted a Community &
Business Perceptions Survey for the Shire of Collie to evaluate and monitor
performance across a range of Shire services and facilities. In 2015 the
Community, Business and Youth Perception Surveys were completed via
an online survey tool used by the Shire and survey information mailed out
to all residents.

                                                                 Page 4 of 19
The community perception surveys were available for all residents to
complete. Issues identified by the community as a whole in the 2015
survey as areas of low satisfaction and high priority were:
    Local employment (drive in /drive out, youth employment programs)
    Parking in the CBD (perceived lack of)
    Post secondary education options
    Youth activities
    River rehabilitation and restoration
    Antisocial behaviour

CSCP Survey

In 2015 the Community Safety and Crime Prevention Committee conducted
a survey based on questions used in CSCP surveys conducted in previous
years.

Community priorities identified through the survey were:

                    Drugs
                    House break-ins
                    Speeding / dangerous driving
                    Drunken / disorderly behaviour

Collie Alcohol and Other Drugs Plan 2015-2017

A forum was held on 24 May 2011 with key stakeholders to gauge support
for the development of an Alcohol Management Plan [AMP] for Collie.
Stakeholders present voted in support of the formation of such a working
group and at its meeting on 29 June 2011 Council authorised the CSCP to
form a sub-committee to guide the development and implementation of an
AMP for Collie. At its Council meeting of 29 March 2016 Council changed
this sub-committee to a working group to make the reporting process more
streamlined and to better facilitate actions undertaken by the AMP working
group.

The AMP working group consulted extensively with key stakeholders during
the process of reviewing and updating the Collie Alcohol and Other Drugs
Management Plan 2015 – 2017 (CAODMP). Meetings and forums were
facilitated by the Senior Project Officer from the Mental Health Commission
(formally the Drug and Alcohol Office), the Regional Tobacco, Alcohol &
Other Drugs Coordinator from the WA Country Health Services-South West
Unit, and the Collie Alcohol Project Officer.

The CAODMP actions and strategies address Key Priority 3: Reduced
impact of alcohol and drug related harm in this plan.

The CAODMP is administered by the Project Officer for the Collie Alcohol
and Other Drugs Management Plan, with St John of God as the auspice
organisation.

                                                                 Page 5 of 19

State Alignment
The State Community Crime Prevention Plan is currently being updated by
the Western Australian Police.

Once the State plan has been updated and released a review of the state
alignment within the Collie Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan
2016 – 2019 will take place.

The Collie Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan demonstrates
alignment with all five priorities in the 2011/2014 State plan.

The Key Priority and Action Areas set by the State Government in the
2011/2014 State Community Crime Prevention Plan are:

Priority 1: Early intervention to improve the wellbeing of children and families.

        Parents are provided with an appropriate level of support and
         assistance in accessing relevant services during critical phases
         of the child’s early formative years
        Young people are provided with recreational and volunteer
         programs that encourage engagement with their community.
        Providing schools with the capacity to take action in addressing
         the particular circumstances of students who are at risk of
         persistent absence and behavioural problems.
        Identifying best practice early intervention programs and creating
         linkages and agreements where agencies can effectively share
         relevant information that enables them to better assist at-risk
         families, children and youth.
        Parents are offered assistance through Responsible Parenting
         Services, to address their children’s anti-social or criminal
         behaviour, or school attendance issues.

Priority 2: Youth justice and reducing re-offending.

        Implementing the Youth Justice Strategy which aims to improve
         service provision to young people involved in the Youth Justice
         system.
        Effective prevention and diversionary activities for youth
         through a coordinated strategic based approach to
         community-based, multi-agency initiatives. These initiatives
         should facilitate personal development, promote civic
         responsibility      and    improve       long-term     employment
         prospects.
        Effective case management of young people who offend and
         those at risk of offending which draws agencies and families
         together to target the specific risk factors of each young person.
        Young people in custody are provided with opportunities for
         rehabilitation, personal growth, education and skills development
         to assist them to successfully re-integrate back into the
         community.

                                                                           Page 6 of 19
Collie CSCP Plan –2016 - 2019

Priority 3: Preventing and responding to anti-social behaviour.

        The concept of positive citizenship will be promoted to
         connect children and young people with the community
         through activities that instil community values, respect and
         resilience. This will increase their likelihood of developing a
         socially responsible attitude.
        Graffiti vandalism will be reduced by a multifaceted
         approach articulated in the State Tough on Graffiti Strategy.
         This Strategy ensures a range of effective reduction
         activities are spear-headed by ramped-up enforcement and
         offender management regimes.                Local government
         authorities and agencies will be supported in their
         prevention/removal/reduction activities.
        Hoon behaviour will be prevented by enforcing a range of
         strategies that target individuals and groups who persist in
         driving vehicles in a a manner that created unnecessary risk
         to themselves and others.
        Responding to anti-social behaviour in housing through working
         collaboratively through the Disruptive Behaviour Management
         Strategy to address anti-social behaviour caused by public
         housing tenants.
        Preventing anti-social behaviour on transport by implementing a
         range of safety and security measures that increase the safety of
         passengers and employees who work for public transport
         providers.
        Promotion of designing out crime to address community
         safety in public areas or building in terms both of reducing
         anti-social behaviour, crime and fear of crime. This will
         include the use of CCTV as a surveillance measure.

Priority 4: Addressing and reducing drug and alcohol related crime.

        Prevention of harmful alcohol use through enforcement of
         liquor licensing laws, controlling access and availability,
         targeting harmful alcohol use including binge drinking,
         health promotion and responsible marketing, supply and
         service.
        Early intervention services that identify individuals, families and
         communities at risk through various initiatives under the Western
         Australian Diversion Program.
        Treatment and support strategies, including improved access to
         drug and alcohol treatment services for high risk populations,
         such as young people, Aboriginal people and communities and
         people with co-occurring mental health and drug and alcohol
         problems.
        A focus on strong law enforcement to reduce and control the
         availability of drugs and alcohol and implement strategies that
         aim to prevent or break the cycle of offending; such as high
         visibility in and around licensed outlets, increased compliance
         with relevant legislation, random breath and saliva testing, and
         focusing on drug seizures and the targeting of dealers.
        Provision of diversion to drug and alcohol treatment for offenders
         to intervene and divert offenders from the criminal justice system
         and into treatment programs.

                                                                         Page 7 of 19
Collie CSCP Plan –2016 - 2019

Priority 5: Targeting priority offences.

        Management of prolific offenders using a standardised and multi-
         agency approach to effectively manage and target the small
         number of prolific offenders who account for a disproportionate
         amount of crime in the State.
        Rehabilitation of adult offenders through treatment services and
         programs to rehabilitate offenders who are amenable to
         intervention.
        Working with local governments, industry and commercial
         agencies to make changes to buildings, public spaces and
         streets to make them safer and education potential victims
         about how to prevent crime in their homes, cars and lives.
        Prioritisation of all crimes involving violence against one or more
         persons and including community violence.
        Preventing family violence through strengthening community
         understanding and awareness, providing for the safety of adult
         and child victims and holding perpetrators accountable for their
         violent behaviour through the implementation of the WA Strategic
         Plan for Family and Domestic Violence 2009-2013.
        Facilitating treatment programs through the drug courts as part of
         the court process to break the cycle of substance misuse and
         offending.
        Monitoring emerging crimes that are affecting the community
         such as elder abuse, scam fraud, cyber bullying and hate crimes.
         Researching and delivering preventative practices to ensure that
         these crimes do not become prolific in the community.
